A surface mount mirror can either be screwed or glued to the wall. If it's screwed on it's simple to take off a little harder to remove a glued on surface mount mirror first put some packing tape on the face of the mirror in case it cracks tap. Some shims between the mirror and the wall make them snug, but don't force them, then, starting at the top put a shim against the wall and gently work, a pry bar behind the mirror, pulling it away a little at a time. You want the drywall paper to tear.
Have someone hold the top and work your way to the bottom when the mirrors free carefully set it aside, then repair the drywall and paint next taking out a surface. Mount cabinet is simple since it's just screwed to the wall, just remove the shelves and back out the screws. The cabinet comes right down. Finally, recessed cabinets, that's what we have before we redid these walls. It was pretty easy to take out. First, we got the shelves out of the way. Then we removed the screws and just pulled the cabinet out of the wall all right.
Once your mirror is gone, you can take out the lights first, we turned off the power in the bathroom and don't forget with the power off you'll need light, so it helps to have a work light powered from another part of the house. Okay, the next step was to remove bulbs. Then we remove the shades next. We unscrewed and pull the fixture out a little. If your house wires are all the same color mark how they're connected to the old fixture then disconnect okay, now it's time to install the new mirror, whatever mirror you choose, the first thing to figure out is where you want. It makes sure it's centered above the faucet and below the light fixture at a comfortable height, then mark the wall you're, considering a service mount mirror.
Most of them nowadays come with a mounting hardware kit, just all the directions that come with yours, we're installing a surface mount cabinet. We simply hold the cabinet in place and mark the mounting holes. Then we set the cabinet aside and drill pilot holes always use the right wall anchors. If you don't hit a stud, then we just hold the cabinet in place and drive in the screws cap the screws and add the shelves done.
As for recessed medicine cabinets, you can get one that will fit into the existing hole in the wall, but if you get a larger one or don't already have a recess in the wall, just follow the cabinet's directions for mounting in your wall type. Usually, it's just a matter of cutting a stud and framing the recess and we're ready to hang our new light. We're moving the light from the sides to the top of the mirror, and we had an electrician relocate our wiring. So once again, you'll want to make sure the power is off.
